The majority of Americans are White supremacists

Nearly 60 percent of the country, that is, if you believe California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (D-Race Card) who said, when asked about the recent Arizona immigration law:

“They’re not accidental or one person’s crazy idea,” she said of the law. “There’s a concerted effort behind promoting these kinds of laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to white supremacy groups,” Sanchez said.

“It’s been documented. It’s not mainstream politics. (Legislators) are being approached by folks, who are front organizations for white supremacist hate groups. They propose the language of these bills and get people to carry these bills in the state legislatures,” she said.

Emphasis added.

I really think we need a corollary to Godwin’s Law covering cries of racism, rather than Nazis. Brain-dead comments like Sanchez’s just illustrate the intellectual bankruptcy of the pro-illegal immigration Left; they can’t win based on the facts, so they have to fling charges of racism at their opponents in the hope of intimidating them into silence. Only they (from the President on down) are playing it so often that the public is wising up to their game, and it isn’t working nearly as well as it used to.

And, to the shock of none, Sanchez has so far offered no proof of this Vast White-Supremacist Conspiracy.

What’s truly sad here, aside from Sanchez’s resort to race-baiting and her smear of people with legitimate concerns about illegal immigration, is that her district is apparently represented by a dishonest fool who (again, like the President and the Attorney General) probably hasn’t read the bill or, worse, has and doesn’t care. Either way, she’s doing her constituents no favors.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to pick up my white sheet and hood from the cleaners.

    This is cheap, lazy bullshit, and I’m surprised you fell for it. This is the worst piece of twisted propaganda I’ve seen you post. The original article actually conflates two things: a poll saying 59% of Americans favor the Arizona Law, and Sanchez’s assertion that white supremacists are behind the law. Sanchez NEVER said that a majority or even a large percentage were behind it. Her ACTUAL assertion is that a SMALL group is driving the laws.

    I’m really surprised you’d repeat this kind of BS. It undermines your otherwise (correct) analysis of Sanchez’s tactic. This kind of distortion is what’s really wrong with the right’s approach in trying to regain control of the country, and it undermines them, too. What Sanchez said was already plenty nutty: you DON’T NEED TO EXAGGERATE IT WITH LIES. And polls, which are like lies.

      Whoa, calm down there. You’ll burst a blood vessel or turn into the Hulk, or something. 🙂

      Someone seeing Sanchez’s assertions and then seeing the cited Pew study or another poll could easily assume that the broader group of SB 1070 supporters must sympathize with the White supremacists, since supremacists are supposedly the authors of SB 1070 and other efforts, and therefore by a transitive property are White supremacists themselves. Sanchez is too experienced a politician not to know this and not to realize that she’s laying the ground work for just such an assumption. I’m certain she knew very well what she was doing.

      As, in the broader context, do other pro-illegal immigration advocates. This is part of a more general progressive assault on their opponents, trying to shut them up with false charges of racism. We saw it first during the campaign, when Team Obama played the race card against Hillary’s people, then during the Obamacare arguments, and now it’s being deployed here. Sanchez is one “field operative” in a larger effort.

      I indulged in a bit of sarcastic hyperbole because I was irked and writing that quickly on a break at work, but I don’t think I was out of bounds, cheap, lazy or, as you so nicely put it, dishonest posting “twisted propaganda.”

      (On polls, I regard Rasmussen and Pew as the most reliable, but I like to see trends confirmed in several over time and from different firms – as is the case with national support for bills like SB 1070. Real Clear Politics “poll averages” page is one good source for that. I don’t take them as the Word of God writ on stone tablet, but as points of information)
